    Welcom pandiebeer

    You join me and MattinVegas as the only Vegas residents to my knowledge. I just moved here (bout 2 weeks ago) and haven't met any other smokers yet. So how long ya lived here?

    I moved here about a year and a half ago. I came from SouthBend / Mishawaka, Indiana. I lived down the street from Notre Dame (didn't go there though except to rollerblade). I was born and raised in Massachusetts, so I'm a New Englander at heart. Vegas, or being out west, is totally new and exciting for me. Last week I was in California which was awesome. There is so much to do in Las Vegas though. What area do you live in? I started out living on like the edge of Summerlin in apartments that were near Buffalo and Lake Mead Blvd. Las July though I moved to Summerlin near Sahara and the 215w. They're building a new casino where we live, Red Rock Station. This city is in a construction frenzy!

    I moved here with my folks (I know, 20 and still at home). Were in the Northwest part of Vegas, north of Summerlin (which I drove around and looked really nice) I believe. The Santa Fe casino is like 5 minutes away. It's very surreal living so close to a freaking casino.

    There's tons to do here I'm sure, but I'm still a couple of months short of 21, so its frustrating. I haven't gotten a job yet either, but the search continues tomorrow.

    It took me 6 months to find a job and I applied eveywhere. Then it was like as soon as I got one, they were everywhere. At one point I was working with a hiring agency and she told me people in this town are just really slow when it comes to employment. They go through applications slowly, interwiew for a long time, etc. The nice thing is that they have job fairs all the time at some casinos. I was a little picky though about getting the right job so I only applied for what I wanted to be doing, and even though it took a while, I got it.

    I can't imagine turning 21 in Vegas. Tht should be fun! Mostly I can't believe all of the bands that come here for concerts. Even that they host award shows here. I went to the Billboard Music Awards both times since I've been here just because I could. It's crazy -and fun!
